The adoption of BIM for infrastructure projects is driven by time and money. A simple answer to a complex issue, but one supported by data.

BIM provides common benefits to both vertical and horizontal uses, but often has unique applications in infrastructure. In fact, 87% of infrastructure professionals say they find value in BIM. Owner impetus is one factor driving BIM adoption, with more than one-third of owners requesting it. Broader adoption of BIM is set to unlock 15–25% savings for the global infrastructure market by 2025, and the world BIM market will be an $11.7 billion (U.S.) industry by 2022.

Other Factors at play:

Standards – BIM standards are crucial to ensuring consistency in measurement and analysis.

Scalability – Project size matters on the perceived ROI.

Complexity – Infrastructure professionals consistently rank project complexity as the top factor driving their decision to use BIM

Training – Continued training on BIM platforms and best practices for integration with other discrete and interoperable software systems which is essential to build momentum.

Use throughout the Project Life Cycle – BIM is most often used during design development and construction, but the additional value can be captured by increasing the use of BIM  during O&M phases.
